Drying up help


I breastfed for almost a year and I would like to stop. For the last month I gradually went from 5 pumps to 4, 3, 2 and finally 1. My “last pump” was 9 days ago and my boobs are rock hard, knotty and leaking. My body is not absorbing leftover milk. I desperately want to pump to relieve the buildup but don’t want to start over again. I’m trying to muscle through, but wonder if I should just empty out one last time. Anyone been in the same boat? If I pump would they at least fill up less?
